Trivia


 

    Album

  • The music and background score of this film featured the accordion prominently. The accordion was played by composer A.R. Rahman himself.
  • This 2007 film was loosely based on the real life story of Dhirubhai Ambani's rise to prominence and his conflict with the Indian Express' Ramnath Goenka.

    Song

  • Barso Re Megha Megha - The "Na na re" refrain in this song came from A.R. Rahman's son Ameen. In fact, Rahman almost didn't use the tune of this hook and added it in only when he heard Ameen, who had overheard it while Rahman was composing it, humming it.[MR16]
  • Tere Bina - A.R. Rahman dedicated this song to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The song's title were a riff on the legendary qawwal's popular "Sajna Tere Bina".[MR16]
  • Tere Bina - This song almost did not make the final cut of the movie. When A.R. Rahman first played it to Mani Ratnam, he felt that it would not fit in the film. However, a month before the film's audio release, he changed his mind and included it in the film. The song went on to become a big hit.[MR16]
  • Tere Bina - When A.R. Rahman saw the picturization of this song, he felt that the sadness of the character did not match the original, happy mood of the song. Rahman then modified the beginning of the song to give it a sombre mood that matched the picturization.[MR16]
  • Tere Bina - This A.R. Rahman song was used in the Hollywood animation film "Planes" (2013) in the scene where Dusty, the crop-dusting plane, flies to the Taj Mahal.[1]
  • Mayya - The inspiration for this song's title came to Rahman from a water-seller's cries when Rahman was going for Hajj. Mayya is water in Arabic.[MR16]
  • Ae Hairat-E-Aashiqi - Rahman composed this song using Amir Khusrau's poem "Ae Sharbat-E-Ashiqui". Gulzar wrote the actual lyrics after Rahman had finished the composition.[MR16]
  • Jaage Hain Der Tak - A.R. Rahman made this song although it did not fit the film's brief. Mani Ratnam liked it so much when he heard it that he decided to use it as a background theme.[MR16]
  • Jaage Hain Der Tak - Mani Ratnam was inspired by a real-life incident to include this song in the film. His father-in-law, Charu Haasan (Kamal Haasan's elder brother, Suhasini's father) met with an accident in Paris and had to be hospitalized. He suffered from temporary amnesia and Suhasini was advised by his doctors to interact with him to help him regain his memory. Suhasini sang Carnatic songs that she grew up hearing and that helped her father recover and regain his memory. Mani Ratnam wanted to introduce this scenario in the film and when he told A.R. Rahman about it, Rahman suggested the theme he had composed for the background score. Gulzar wrote the lyrics on the spot and the song was recorded a day before the shoot.[MR17]
  • Shauk Hai - This A.R. Rahman song, sung by Sowmya Raoh, was part of the background score and was not part of the audio release of the movie. Sony BMG later released the full length track separately.
